Thanks everyone!

Thanks for all the feedback and comments everyone!

I've gotten quite a bit of mail from Witchvox probably the most touching was from a woman in the Midwest who wrote that so far her whole life she has completely lived in the closet out of fear and what could happen if anyone found out she's a Witch. She said that last week's article inspired her to go to the next local Pagan Pride Day for the first time in her life.

I don't know about anyone else, but writing something that touches the life of even one person is worth it. It doesn't matter if what you say is only being read by five people or broadcast out to millions daily, what matters is that you inspire people to take action for the better.

Doing a deed that inspires even one person to do good deeds and dare great action, even if that action is private or personal, because it is right is the greatest glory. Asserting our rights as Americans and humans may seem daunting, ourselves and our ancestors have beaten greater odds. We have come in fifty years from being mocked as a fringe cult of crazies to winning victories like the recognition of the British Pagan Constables' right to take Pagan religious holidays or the US Army putting our faiths in the Chaplains' Manual.

The road ahead will not be easy, it will not be short, and it certainly will not be smooth. But it is a road we must walk, whether of our own volition or forced by circumstance. I would rather we do it by our own choice.
